Poor Water Quality Will Negatively Impact the Beer Industry

More than 60 craft brewers are voicing concern over the repeal of Clean Water Act regulation, as it can affect the flavor of the beer being brewed. Simple changes in the levels of chlorine needed to process water can change the flavor profile making the beer taste like aspirin. This could upset the entire industry with a price hike passed on to consumers due to new filtration systems, water processing, and product lost in the process.
